Grants Available To Local Fair Organizations

Four area fair organizations are being offered a chance to share in $5 million in funding to offset the cost of improvement and renovation projects.

Governor Cuomo’s office says the Afton Driving Park and Agricultural Association, Chenango County Agricultural Society, Delaware Valley Agricultural Society and the Otsego County Fair Association are on the list of fairs eligible to receive grants of up to $89,525 each.

To receive the funding, fairs must submit the scope of work and estimated budget for proposed projects to the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets
